Are you buying, selling or just window shopping? The Krico's are excellent rifles but tend to be pricey particularly on models like this!

I was simply trying to see if there was anyone interested in Kricos. I certainly have no interest in selling it and do not want to buy another.

Several folks here, including myself have them, very nice little rifles and good shooters too.

I have one that looks exactly like gmd's Krico. I found out from Krico that it is a 320 Model and the year manufactured, also.

The double set triggers are COOL..! Mine was the first one I had ever seen, so I bought it! It shoots better than I expected it to on the 50 yd. range. Enjoy!

Gentlemen,

I just checked the # and date on mine and it is 792XX and was made in Stuttgart. It is stamped 63 in front of an emblem on the top left side of the receiver.

Mine had a cracked butt/plate, which I repaired. My rear sight is on a circular piece, covering up the front of the 'Germany' name. (The folding 3 leaf rear sight sits on this.) It also does not have a bolt release on the left side of the receiver and the safety is on the right side, behind the bolt handle. It did come w/ white-line spacers on the grip cap & butt/plate. I can slide the bolt free by pressing the trigger back.

It was missing the front sight hood, which I found elsewhere and installed. The barrel is 22". If I could post photos of it, I would? I could NOT find a Model # on it and E-mailed Krico and was told it was a 320 Model, made by them in Germany. I only have one magazine and it is stamped 60000 and 80000 with the Krico emblem to the left side. {I was told, IF I find another magazine it would have to match this # on the bottom of my only magazine.}

I was amazed by how thin the wood is along the barrel channel itself. The stock has a cheekpiece and MAY BE walnut - I don't know?

Hope this helps to compare someone else's Krico .22? Thank you!

Brittman

Thanks guys. This conversation is exactly what I was hoping for when I posted the photo. Everyone I knew wanted a Krico after first seeing the .222 Mannlichers pictured in Stoegers in the late 1950's



Stoegers distribution system was terrible and none of us ever saw one for sale. I found this Krico .22 Hornet about 25 years ago. Its a nice rifle, but it was overshadowed by .22 Hornet rifles made by Anschutz and Walther.

I have one of those incoming, serial number in the13xxx. They are definitely underrated and intriguing rifles. I will see how it compares to the 301 Luxus.

I've always loved double set triggers and Mannlicher stocks. Found a Krico in 222 about 2 yrs ago but it wasn't in very good shape with marks all over, checkering worn down, cracked stock and bluing worn. They wanted $475 which now I wish I had paid but I'm kind of particular on condition. I have regretted passing it up ever since.

Looking forward to your thoughts on the Krico AndyD.
